Heparan sulfate (HS) is a highly sulfated polysaccharide on the surface of mammalian cells and in the extracellular matrix and has been found to be important for virus binding and infection. In this work, we designed synthetic hydrogels with viral binding and deactivation activities through the postfunctionalization of an HS-mimicking polyelectrolyte and alkyl chains. Three polyglycerol-based hydrogels were prepared as substrates and postfunctionalized by sulfated linear polyglycerol (lPGS) via thiol–ene click reaction. The viral binding properties were studied using herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). The effect of hydrogel types and molecular weight (Mw) of conjugated lPGS on viral binding properties was also assessed, and promising binding activities were observed in all lPGS-functionalized samples. Further coupling of 11 carbons long alkyl chains to the hydrogel revealed virucidal properties caused by destruction of the viral envelope, as shown by atomic force microscopy (AFM) imaging.
